Many people who walk through our door have all ready made the decision to divorce but others come in because they fear their marriage is coming apart and they don’t know what else to do.

On this page we have put together a list of resources and tools to tap into regardless of where you are at in making a decision about your future with your spouse.

Meditation

If you know for sure that divorce is in your future, the more support you have the better. People come first. Surround yourself with people who lift your spirits and who ground your expectation. Get a good lawyer, a divorce coach and a financial advisor. Other “support staff” could include a therapist, spiritual director, and yogi.

A note from Theresa … I have first-hand experience with all of the resources listed on this page in that I have read the books, contributed content (in the case of Lawyers as Peacemakers), and attended TantraNova workshops.
